Robert Szemesi

He studied different styles of ballroom dancing (Waltz, Foxtrot, Salsa, Cha-Cha, Rumba, Blues, Swing, Rock’n’Roll, Tango and improvisational dance) and even Jazz and Step dance, Hip-Hop, classical and modern ballet, folk dance, …

This all-around dance talent has been the head of a dance club in Zagreb since 1999. He actively uses his musical talent for dancing as well as teaching dance.

In the Salsa world he is known as “the Crazyman”, a nickname he lives up to with his never-ending energy on the dance floor and his ability to completely dive into the music as he enjoys both Cuban and LA style. He is famous for his playful dance style, fun and full of energy, but he also loves the easy-going, elegant and sentimental “Salsa Elegante”.

Robi broadened his knowledge of different dance styles at many Salsa Congresses, festivals and other such events abroad and at home, working with several masters. He incorporates all of his knowledge with different elements in his Free-Style Salsa.

For him dancing becomes an experience when: – it’s not mechanical, but arouses emotions; – it’s not forced, but effortless and free; – it’s not something you learn, but something you understand; – it’s not empty and excessive, but in tune with the music; – or in short: when, through dancing, the dance partners and the music become one.

His motto:

“Give a man a fish, feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish, feed him for a lifetime.”

„The best dancing is when you dance in a way that makes it possible for a deaf person to enjoy the music.“
